White Tea Beats Green Tea In Fighting Germs

While we're still on white tea being better than green tea ScienceDaily 5/25/04 "studies conducted at Pace University have indicated that White Tea Extract (WTE) may have prophylactic applications in retarding growth of bacteria that cause Staphylococcus infections, Streptococcus infections, pneumonia and dental caries...The anti-viral and anti-bacterial effect of white tea (Stash and Templar brands) is greater than that of green tea...White tea extract exhibited an anti-fungal effect on both Penicillium chrysogenum and Saccharomyces cerevisiae...White tea extract may have application in the inactivation of pathogenic human microbes, i.e., bacteria, viruses, and fungi...Milton Schiffenbauer, Ph.D., a microbiologist and professor in the Department of Biology at Pace University's Dyson College of Arts & Sciences and primary author of the research"

Of course white tea is a tid bit more expensive and harder to find than green tea - so there's that.
